Actions to support proper label display in shops
National partners will conduct a wide range of activities to support the proper presence of energy labels in shops – both the new energy labels, and the old “design”, depending on the product category. Project partners plan to contact other organisations, such as consumer groups, media, environmental NGOs, educational organisations etc. to involve them into a common effort to explain, motivate and cooperate with retailers about the proper displays of energy labels, possibly directly also involving related information activities.
These organisations will be invited to help with additional actions to support and motivate shops and bringing media attention to the positive effects of labelling on consumers’ energy bill, the energy efficiency of the country, etc. Appliance suppliers (manufacturers and importers) will also be invited to play an active role in supporting proper appliance labelling in shops and helping retailers in achieving this goal. Retailers will be invited to take part in promotion and education activities.
The documents describing specific activities are due in June 2012, or contact the project co-ordinator or national project partners if you would like to be engaged in this activity.
